I’ve been trying on dresses for over a month. I have narrowed it down to 3 or 4. However, I just can’t decide. I think I need some anonymous help. My problem with dresses is I have disliked very few! My figure is a bit waify and the only style I don’t like is ballgown. I love ilussion backs/fronts. My wedding will be outdoors on the Oceanside in Northern California. Marchesa “Poppy”
Pics are of Reem Acra ‘Morelle’, Marchesa “poppy”, Lela Rose- ‘Tompkins Sq Park’ and ‘Orange Blossom’ by Claire Pettibone. Pics.

I love them all. I’m also obsessed with sheer/illusion backs and all of these dresses are on my radar for my beach wedding (although I prefer the lace on Claire Pettibone Chantilly to the Orange Blossom).
I voted for Marchesa Poppy as I think it looks amazing on your petite frame. But they’re all great. Good luck!

You look stunning in all of them! I voted for the Claire. (sorry I’m a bit biased because she’s my favorite designer- I’m wearing Kristene) But my second favorite is the Marchesa Poppy!

My favorite is the Lela Rose-Tompkins Square Park. I think the back of the dress is so intricate and beautiful!
My second choice would be the Orange Blossom.
With the poppy, I don’t care for the buttons on the illusion back.
Reem Acra- Morelle-I don’t care for the straps.

I do not like the Orange Blossom or Lela Rose. The ruffle on the back is not very flattering IMO. The most visually stunning of the four your posted are the Marchesa and Reem Acra. If you want the sleeves go for the Marchesa, and if you want straps go for the Reem Acra.
